Facilitated by Roseanne Campbell RN, IBCLC
No appointment necessary. Lactation consultations in a group setting every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month. Suggested donation is $20 but no one will be turned away due to cost.
The Lactation Clinic empowers women with lactation education to improve the health of mothers and babies. Services are provided by board-certified registered nurse lactation consultant who has advanced training in breastfeeding management. Lactations consultants are experienced in counseling, teaching and problem solving with latching or other breast feeding issues for breastfeeding mothers.
A typical visit to the clinic consists of observation of the baby breastfeeding, assessment of maternal and infant anatomy, evaluation of breastfeeding troubles, suggestions for resolving difficulties and assessment of infant weight loss or gain.
The clinic is open to all breastfeeding mothers but is extremely beneficial to those having any breastfeeding difficulties, low weight gain in baby, NICU graduates or mothers who are going back to work and need a pumping plan.
